2011 Ford Mustang Gets A New Engine – Extra Horses For Mustang
Ford decided to replace Mustang’s base engine with a new one, a 3.7-liter V6 made of aluminium, that develops 305 HP.
Ford Mustang got a new engine. We are talking here about a 3.7-liter aluminium block engine, having 305 HP. This new engine replaces the “antique” 4-liter V6 that provided only 210 HP. The new engine is official called Duratec 3.7 DOHC Ti-VCT V6.
Another Ford technological premiere was the association of the new engine with a six-speed manual r automatic transmission. We remind you that the 2010 Mustang V6 and V8 models use five-speed gearboxes. The 2011 Mustang will also get some technical enhancements, among them a revised suspension, new shocks and a generous dimensions stabilizer bar. The brake discs are also bigger than before.
Plus, the 2011 models will have a new dashboard and a speedometer graded to 160 mph and a tachometer who’s red zone begins at 8,000 rpm. Starting August 2010 a Performance Package will be available, including a sport suspension, 19 inch rims and high performance tires.
The 2011 Ford Mustang V6 will be presented at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
